Noah Sundberg Sonko was born in Sweden but is due to represent Gambia internationally this month.
His verdict to turn to Gambia comes after he had played in all levels for Sweden except in their national squad.
The tie against Guinea Conakry will be his chance to impress Gambians and if it that’s not enough there is the Congo Brazzaville friendly too.
The scorpions are preparing facing Gabon as they sit joint-top of the Africa Cup of Nations qualification of their group.
The 24-year-old is a defender and could feature with either Omar Colley or fellow new call-up Maudo Jarjue who plays n Austria’s first division.
